Second City Style’s 12 Days Of Christmas (Shopping) ’08. Day 5: Rachel Yeomans’ Style Sleuth Picks.

December 5, 2008 • Shopping


The economy this year doesn’t warrant extravagance or over-the-top indulgences. However for the sake of wishing, how lovely would it be to see these items under my Christmas tree?


Baby Alpaca Vest by Rosario de Armenteras $775


Navy Merino Wool Sweater by ADAM Adam Lippes $365

This holiday season promises to be a chilly one for those like myself nestled in the cooler northerly regions of the country. With that in mind, this year I wish for warmth. I absolutely adore the simple concepts behind these two pieces but they both have such character they can’t help but lift the holiday spirit that much higher!


Rachel Roy Dela Metallic Dress $1,290


Bottega Veneta Geometric Wool Jersey Dress $1,880

Even with the many vacation days planned during this time of year, this is also the time for holiday functions and corporate get-togethers. Therefore I need those perfect items that can go from office to party as fast as the 5pm bell tolls. These two items are not only simple but have much promise to offer the evening jazz that is required of the season.


Prada Pearlized Ruffled Convertible Hobo $2,450

Every working girl needs her favorite handbag. When it comes to fashion, I veer towards the realm of simple with fabulous accessories. This amazing Prada bag is not only the perfect size for functionality, but it works it!


Jimmy Choo Suede "Erica" Shoe Booties $837


Collier Jardin D’Hiver Necklace 114.00€

I dress up with accessories. Give me a black shirt and skirt, and I will pair them with the most colorful shoes and statement jewelry on the market. My favorite color is purple, so these Jimmy Choo booties are at the top of my holiday wish list. And I discovered this necklace at a boutique in Manhattan—and if Santa doesn’t deliver, I just may have to fit this into my own Christmas budget.


Thomas Wylde Psychedelic Chiffon Scarf $229

As the song goes, “Baby it’s cold outside.” Why not warm up with an enormous scarf portraying yards of style? 

So happy holidays, dear SCS readers! And I hope you discover some fantastic (and fashionable) finds under your Christmas tree this holiday season!
